Who You Gonna Call? Dave (and) Busters!

I'm going to Dave And Buster's today.
It's a Chuck E. Cheese's for older people and it has better prizes.
Unfortunately, the two BEST games (Ms. Pac-Man and Donkey Kong) that they have don't give tickets.
They're fun, and I'm REALLY good at them.
But I love the prizes too.
Oh, snap, I've just walked myself into a corner.
Leave your answer in the comments, and next time I go I'll take the advice that has been said the most.
Think of it as, like, my first interactive feature!
ICM (Inside A Cartoonist's Mind) is now INTERACTIVE!
I never used to care what my audience thinks!
I was an uptight scum!
I'm a whole new man!
I'm recreated!
Thank you, doctor.
Wait, what doctor?
I kinda got carried away there.
Anyway, just leave a comment.

I See Dead People

I saw "ParaNorman" yesterday, so here's a review......

ParaNorman (2012)

Plot: A kid named Norman can speak to the dead, and everybody in town thinks he's a freak, until a witch's curse brings back zombies from the dead.
But guess what?
The zombies don't actually want to eat brains; they're afraid of us. (I guess I would be, too, if a hugely-populated town was trying to kill me. Oh, wait, that happened last week.)

Is It Scary?: For little kids, probably. But then again, I saw the behind-the-scenes commercials, and it isn't half as scary when you see that it's stop-motion puppets....

Language: Surprisingly, this is a kids' movie with pretty strong language.

You'll Love It If: You're a fan of Tim Burton's movies.

Rating: Eight stars (Out of a possible ten). See, I changed my rating critera? It used to be five stars at maximum, so that means: "Dog Days": Ten stars, and "The Pirates!": Nine stars.
Anyway, this is a great stop-motion movie with LOTS of great humor.

Camping And FanExpo

So, I went camping and tried every single water slide but two, because I got seriously injured on the toilet bowl one called "The Cyclone".
I got water in my eyes, so I went to rub them, but I somehow banged my head repeatedly, flipped over, scraped myself, and came out upside-down.
Other than that, it was AWESOME!!!!!!!
And now for FAN EXPO!
I'll let the pictures tell the story.    
I also got Ian Flynn's, writer of the Sonic comic books, autograph!!!!!
(Photo later.)

An artist for Archie comics using the exact same drawing pen I use.I nearly wet my pants.

New idea for a special: "I Am Your Father, Charlie Brown".

.......And she means "no swiping".

I need this. The $2500 Sketchbook Pro. I need to save.

Me with one of the writers for Spider-Man.

The only Fix-It-Felix-Jr game in the world. (AKA: Wreck-It Ralph). Yes, I played it.

Going Camping!

25 views in total yesterday.
Oh, hi!
I'm going camping and I won't be back until Sunday, but then I'm going straight to FanExpo.
So I probably won't post until Monday.
This is my first time going camping!
There's a water park there...with water slides!
(Water slides are my favorite rides of all time.)
There's also a tightrope.
When I'm back, I'll write about what I did.

Happiness Is A Lawn

I need this.

PS: 35 views a day ago, and 17 so far today.

Wednesday, August 22, 2012


Considering I started this blog a few weeks ago, my traffic is pretty high.
An example?
I get an average of 16-20 views a day.
A few days ago, I got 26!
I have readers in USA, Canada, Germany, Russia, and Spain.
I know that 16-20 views a day isn't a lot, but for a brand new blog it is.
So, thanks to all my readers!
Oh, wait. I should probably translate that for my readers in the French part of Canada, German people, Russian people, and Spanish people.
(In that order.)
Alors, merci à tous mes lecteurs!
 Also, vielen Dank an alle meine Leser!
 Так что, спасибо всем моим читателям!
 Así, gracias a todos mis lectores!
By the way, here is the COOLEST SUSHI ON EARTH.
(Unless they make a Peanuts or Garfiield one.)

Smarter Than The Average Blogger

Do you watch Hanna-Barbera cartoons?
I do.
But did you notice that pretty much all the characters either wear a hat, a collar, a dog collar, cuffs, a tie, or a bowtie?

Fred Flintstone: Tie
Snaglepuss: Collar, Cuffs, Bowtie
Scooby-Doo: Dog Collar
Yogi Bear: Hat, Tie, Collar
Boo Boo: Tie

And, even though they're Peyo's characters, Hanna-Barbera made the show-Smurfs: Hat
See what I mean?

I Love Flea Markets

I was right about my ponytail.....RIP.
Anyhow, I was at a flea market and I got a used "The Muppets" DVD.
And two bootleg DVDs. ("The Three Stoooges" and "The Avengers".)
But guess what?!
Somebody messed up and the Stooges DVD was actually another used DVD!
So, I got all the features AND the movie instead of just the movie.
Happiness is a flea market.

My Little Pony.....Tail

I forgot to mention this, but I'm growing my hair long for cancer.
Y'know, so they can make a wig out of it.
Anyhow, my hair is curly (NATURALLY curly, as Frieda from "Peanuts" would say) and it has gotten so out of control that now I need a ponytail.
For some reason, I don't think my ponytail will make it to the end of tomorrow.

Back From FINAL Vacation

And now, my FINAL vacation has ended. I'll be able to post more now.
I went to Cornwall to visit my grandmaman (that's french for "Grandma").
I got six "Sonic The Hedgehog" comic books and a Tails action figure. I also got a hoodie and rollerblading goggles (Yes, I rollerblade/skate).
I also saw the new wimpy kid movie, "Dog Days", and "The Pirates! Band Of Misfits".
Review time.

The Pirates! Band Of Misfits

The Plot: The pirate captain (No, literally, his name is "Pirate Captain") tries to win pirate of the year while a forever alone Charles Darwin discovers his parrot is a rare species of extinct bird called Dodo.
Pirate captain sells his Dodo to the antagonist, the queen, and strikes it rich. That is, until the people at pirate of the year award discover the queen gave him the "loot". (Y'see, the way to win the award is to get the most "loot".) So they get the Dodo back and win.

My Rating: Four stars (Out of five). A nice claymated movie, but not as good as Wallace and Grommit. Still, it's really good.

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

The Plot: Greg Heffley and his friend Rowley try to impress the new girl, Holly Hills. (Short and to the point.)
My Rating: Five stars (Out of five)! Man, the wimpy kid has outdone himself....again! Combining books three and four of the series makes an awesome movie. (By the way, Robert Capron, the guy who plays Rowley, also plays young Curly in the epic and awesome movie, "The Three Stooges".

Catch ya later!

Back From ANOTHER Vacation

I'm baaaack! (Again.)
This time I went to Buffalo and Niagara Falls.
I only have one more vacation coming up!
For this vacation, I went shopping in Buffalo and got the game "Sonic Rush Adventure". I'll give a review of it after I play it. (Marine The Raccoon, mate!) The hotel I stayed in has an awesome heated pool, and my room was GIANT. I spent a lot of time watching Cartoon Network in there, and before I fell asleep I watched part of a Storage Wars marathon. Now all that I think of is "Yuuuuuuup!" In Niagara falls, I got a Sock Monkey. Our hotel wasn't as nice, but it was pretty good. The pool there was freezing, but once you dip your head in, you get used to it. The hot tub there was AWESOME, and the sauna made me sweat a lot. I also went into Louie Tussaud's, THE greatest wax museum I've ever been in. The only thing that irked me was when I tried talking to Marty McFly.
("Marty! MARTY! We need to get you back to the future! Marty? MARTY! ANSWER ME! GREAT SCOTT, HE'S MADE OF WAX! This is heavy......")
Anyways, I was wondering:
Have you seen the Hawaiian Punch commercials?
If you haven't, I've posted it at the end of this post.
So, the kid with the weird hat's all like, "Hey, how about a nice Hawaiian Punch?" and the old dude's like,"Sure". So the kid punches him in the face.
But what if the old dude said, "no"?
Would the kid just stand there, feeling all awkward?
Or would he just say, "too bad", and then punch the guy anyway?
What happens AFTER the kid punches the old dude?
Is the old dude all like, "That's it, I'm suing you!"?
I'd kind of like to see the old dude sue the kid.
That would make an interesting commercial.
(I'm on to something.)
All the other mascots would be there, like the Tootsie Pop owl, the Trix rabbit, Sonny the cuckoo, etc.
The owl would be the judge and he'd say, "This is the case of the old dude versus the kid with the weird hat!" Then the platniff (old dude) would say, "Your honor, this kid punched me in the face when I asked for a Hawaiian Punch. The worst part is, I didn't even get the drink!" After that, the defendant (the kid) would be all like, "You said you wanted punch!" Then the defense attorney for the kid would be the Trix rabbit. He'd be all like, "Well, the old dude DID ask for a punch", but the attorney for the old dude (Count Chocula) would say, "But not literally!" Then, the count would go in his coffin and the rabbit would say, "Your honor, the defense rests." Then Sonny the Cocoa Puffs cuckoo would eat a bowl of Cocoa Puffs and go crazy that they'd have to end the trial and just ask the Charmin bear for a verdict, and he'd be like, "Charmin leaves less  pieces behind than Royale!"
And that would be the end.
